WASTELAND #53 ON SALE
WASTELAND #53 goes on sale this week.
'Breath of Ghosts' is the first part of the final WASTELAND story arc, and sees the return of Chris Mitten to monthly duties.
It’s the ultimate adventure for Michael and Abi, in every sense of the word. From here it’s full steam ahead to issue #59, before we close out the series with the issue #60 epilogue.
CHRISTOPHER MITTEN RETURNS to draw the concluding story arc of this truly epic saga! Michael, Abi, and Thomas have found The Golden Sea, just as the Oracle predicted. But will it lead them to A-Ree-Yass-I? And if it does, what will they find? Questions will be answered, secrets revealed… and not everyone will get out alive!
You can read a preview of the issue on Comic Book Resources.
WASTELAND #53 is available from all good comic stores, with the order code JAN141262. Digital readers can, as always, buy it from Comixology.
I have a piece in the new book CONVERSATIONS WITH WILLIAM GIBSON, a collection of interviews with one of history’s most vital and important SF authors, published by University Press of Mississippi.
Gibson remains an elusive influence on me; there’s no doubt his books have had an enormous, almost inestimable, impact on my life and work. But I find it impossible to quantify exactly how that influence manifests. Which feels appropriate, somehow.
If you’re any kind of Gibson fan, you should seek this book out. It features interviews right through his career; quite apart from my 1999 piece there are contributions from such luminaries as Cory Doctorow, Timothy Leary, Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Charlie Jane Anders… even my old mucker Andy Diggle has a couple of pieces in there, which was something of a surprise when I opened it up.
CONVERSATIONS WITH WILLIAM GIBSON goes on sale today, and the ISBN is 9781628460155.
